Description Christian Rose 2001-01-15 22:14:31 EST
This is a part of the split-up of bug 24072.
The message

#: syslog.init:82
msgid "Usage: syslog {start|stop|status|restart|condrestart}"

could probably be written as

"Usage: %s %s"

Neither the name, "syslog", nor the parameters should be translated, should
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-01-19 12:56:03 EST
will be fixed in 1.4-5.
Comment 2 Christian Rose 2001-02-07 16:20:44 EST
This change is not present yet in the i18n robot.

In addition, let me suggest "syslog" to be replaced with "$0". Then it will be
similar to other usage messages, and help message re-use.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-07 16:25:21 EST
It isn't in the i18n robot because it was reverted.

In any case, switched to $0 in 1.4-7.
